the mississippi. as a san francisco native, i remember the profound disappointment i felt when the classic fox theater on market street built in 1929 during the heyday of the movie industry, was torn down and replaced with an office building. today, i'm afraid i will feel the same disappointment with the destruction of our historically significant park merced garden apartments designed by thomas church, the father of landscape architecture in the bay area. i, glenn rodgers, will attempt to revisit this approval of the park merced development endeavoring to halt rather than exacerbate already unacceptable levels of congestion on 19th avenue. with an increase in 17,000 residents and an additional 6,000 parkses installed, this project is car dependent, a free shuttle to bart is not enough incentive to make this project commuter friendly.
